I agree, but I thought the original poster was saying that the problem
was caused by the update to 10.1.2 ... looking back through that post
and examining 8.2.1 only the vnc and vnc-libs packages are installed,
providing the vncviewer binary, yet on 10.1.2 the binary is not present.
That may be an issue for 10.1.3, but I've not heard any request for it

VncLauncher doesn't use the vncviewer binary; it is a VNC server
activity.  It embeds an x11vnc binary and associated libraries.

I don't see how this problem was caused by 10.1.2, so I remain curious.
